Abstract

This article discusses the proposals to adapt competition law to digital markets. These include substantive innovations such as the reversal of the burden of proof in certain circumstances and other measures, such as restorative remedies. The proposals, which focus on making it easier to establish a prima facie infringement, might need to be complemented with other adaptations to the system. In particular, the administration of complex remedies is likely to remain a challenge for authorities.
